We will have the next “EvoDevo Journal Club” again on Thursday 12th at 14.15 in room 3513 (! new room !). This week we are going to discuss a paper of Chartier et al. about floral morphospace.

Time and place: Dec. 18, 2014 12:30 PM, Meeting room

For this week's journal club, we have a paper on robustly estimating microbial diversity from NGS data, a topic that is probably relevant for a lot of us.

Robust estimation of microbial diversity in theory and in practice

This week we’ll move away from the opisthokonts, and will talk about a group of rhizarian parasites; the phytomyxids.

At the parasite journal club this week we will try again to discuss the myxozoans,  a weird group of parasites within the opisthokonts. They are a strange group of microscopic sized metazoans related to the Cnidaria, and are found in aquatic habitats where they act as parasites of fish, amphibians, reptiles and rarely invertebrates.

Time and place: Nov. 20, 2014 11:00 AM, Meeting room

The paper we will discuss on Thursday will be presented by Håvard.

SWARM: robust and fast clustering method for amplicon-based studies

This week we will discuss another weird group of parasites within the opisthokonts, the myxozoans. They are a strange group of microscopic sized metazoans related to the Cnidaria, and are found in aquatic habitats where they act as parasites of fish, amphibians, reptiles and rarely invertebrates.

This Thursday (6th of November) we will talk more about Illumina sequencing. The paper from last time that compares Illumina with Ion Torrent (Salipante et al. 2014) will be discussed this week.  We also want to discuss a paper that have used the Illumina platform to look at microbial community composition and diversity (Sinclair et al. 2014).

Time and place: Oct. 24, 2014 10:15 AM11:00 AM, Room 4212

This Friday we will discuss this review paper about the fascinating and numerous microsporidian parasites.
